James Rivers Movement

James Rivers Movement is a mixture of Rock, progressive Jazz, Rhythm and Blues and Gospel; the sort of music that implies something for everybody when it’s played. Rivers, one of only three Jazz musicians ever known to play the bagpipes, would probably call himself a saxophonist, but his forte is really an amazing musical dexterity that has helped him master a dozen other instruments.


With over 40 years of musical experience, Rivers has been involved with dozens of musical compilations, including The Best of New Orleans Rhythm & Blues, Vol. 3. In the late 1950s, Rivers was a saxophonist in Huey Smith’s band, The Clowns. In 1959, he was featured on Al Johnson’s Mardi Gras classic “Carnival Time.” During this time, he also did session work for Ric and Ron Records. He has also worked with numerous musical greats, such as Allen Touissaint, Earl King, and Cosmo Matassa.
